Alejandro Frid


Dr. Alejandro Frid is an ecologist for First Nations of British Columbia’s Central Coast, working at the interface of conservation science and social justice. For over two decades, his research experience has spanned from conflicts between industrial development and terrestrial wildlife to the plight of endangered species and the effects of overfishing on marine predators. Born and raised in Mexico City, twice arrested for civil disobedience against fossil fuel companies and their climate-destroying emissions, and spending his adult life in British Columbia and the Yukon, he inhabits the worlds of science, modern indigenous cultures and climate activism.
